Here’s to more good than bad this week!
Seattle 3, Cleveland 2
Three losses in a row for the good guys. Shane Bieber struggled and Cleveland’s offense couldn’t handle the vaunted Mariners’ bullpen day. Cleveland is now 21-17 on the season.

From Mandy Bell:
“That one’s on me,” Cleveland starter Shane Bieber said. “It’s frustrating not doing what I know I can do and what I set out to do, but it is what it is, and I got to focus on the next one.”
“It’s kind of been the theme of the last few outings,” Bieber said. “I haven’t been super sharp like the beginning of the year. … But, objectively, the bullpen did a phenomenal job of saving me there in that fifth inning — Phil did — and keeping the game close the entire game, and we almost scratched one out. So, as a team, I thought it was a well-fought game.”
The young right-hander leads the AL with 25 free passes allowed.
